AS Saint Etienne had been a team that were a mid table side for many years. But last season they broke through, gaining Europa league in the mean time, that was all thanks to 1 man, Aubamayang. But he has now left to Dortmund. Left with no goalscorer how will Saint Etienne fair this year?
In addition more news has come and Saint Etienne manager, Galtier has left with Immediate effect, after being in the job for 5 years. Who will be his replacement? Perhaps club legand, Ivan Ćurković or out of job, Steve McClaren?
The new manager whoever it be will have their work cut out to find a replacement for Aubamayang. Here is a short paragraph with some information about the club.

Association Sportive de Saint-Étienne Loire, also known as Saint Etienne was founded in the year 1919, 94 years ago. Club legands include, UEFA President, Michel Platini and Lyon Midfielder, Mohamed Dabo. But Saint Etienne, despite recent struggles won the league in the years of 1957, 1964, 1967, 1968, 1969, 1970, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1981

Platini steps down to take charge of Saint Etienne
Michel Platini shocked the world today by stepping down as UEFA President, to take charge of French club, Saint Etienne. Platini was reguarded as a legend to the club and today took charge of the club he once played for. UEFA are looking for a new President after this and Alex Ferguson looks like a major candidate for the role.

Platini has played 104 times for the club and scored an amazing amount of 58 goals in his 3 years at the club. Platini has even once managed a football club, well not a club, but a nation as he managed the French national team for 4 years, between 1988 and 1992.

Platini spoke to our sources today and told us, "It's my honoured to be managing a club I once play for. My legacy has been here at the club ever since I left and it's coming back. The club has big standards now, after last season. We have Europa league to also compete in which we can hopefully challenge for!"

A nice update, keep them coming..
Heh, 58 goals in 3 years doesn't sound like much! :P Good luck.
Will this be continued?

Platini's journey begins

Month in Platini's words

It's been great, We've found a good striker, which was already at the club in Brandao and a nice strong midfield, also unbeaten (apart from Monaco) and into the Europa league group stage. Quite a month!
Is it meant to be coded like that?
Have a soft spot for Saint Etienne so hope you do well.
